download both, run, delete, reboot.

it seems i was a bit premature in thinking everything was fixed.

My browser pages are still hanging when opened or when i clik on a different folder in the tree, I.E. im in my music, and then in the folder tree, i clik ALBUMS, [which is inside my music] but i just get an empty window, sometimes upto 12-13 secs. If im in a restore down window evrything on the desktop flashes and the icons revert back an forward into DOS icons,

Evening Zerotolerance, it could possibly be that you just have to many processes running. List what is running by clicking ctrl, alt del, at the same time and make a note, then post here.

Did you download and install tweakui? If you did you can repair most things from here....TT
